This is an organizational entry to help facilitate the L->R function that is impeded with the area containing two distinct towers. So, this is the 50 foot white-colored sandstone tower of the pair. The rock is a bit more solid than the red twin tower of the pair. It has an anchor up top from which you can rappel.

With its proximity to the paved paths, you should expect plenty of non-climber spectators for your ascents...even possibly cheers.

Getting There 

This is one of the central tiny spires in the midst of larger towers nearby. You can park at the North Main Lot and walk to it by walking on the trail between North and South Gateway Rocks, and it is right there.

From the parking spots near the junction of Juniper Way Loop and Garden Drive on the west side of the loop, walk towards the Three Graces and then veer north.

This route is located on the west side of White Spire in the center of the Garden. It follows the line of the protection and is listed at a 5.8 in my guidebook, although it would definitely feel harder on lead due to the zig-zag nature of the route. There are three manky looking pins on the west face if you are wanting to lead this climb. The first pin is on the left of the face about 15 feet up and the second pin is to its right and another 15 feet up. Both of these pins are obvious from th...[more]   Browse More Classics in Colorado
